Radio Aire 2001 - 2015
In 2015, the station logo was changed after the previous version had been used for 15 years. The majority of the station output now comes from Hits Radio in Manchester, although the Breakfast Show still comes from the Leeds studios, together with news for the Hits Radio Network in Northern England and the West Midlands.
Radio Aire continues to broadcast on 96.3 FM and DAB.
Since Radio Aire split it's AM and FM frequencies in July 1990, 828 kHz Medium Wave had been the home of Magic 828.
In January 2015, the decision was made to remove the Magic brand from the northern Medium Wave stations, so the name was changed to Radio Aire 2.
Since January 2019, it has been rebranded as Greatest Hits Radio.
